When I Said "I Do"...

Hi everyone!! So I spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon with my pal Jodi Collins (Stamping A Latte) for some much needed girls & stamping time! I had so much fun and this cute creation is one of the cards that came out of that time.

I made this card for my husband for our Anniversary which is May 1. I think it is just perfect as the laundry in our house always seems to be at max capacity, actually I have a load drying and washing right now!

I started with a card base of Old Olive, White and Chocolate Chip. My DP is Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye. I thought the colors were so nice and could be used for a masculine card. My image is from a favorite set of mine, so thanks for letting me borrow Jodes, Loads of Fun by There She Goes.

I started by stamping the image with Tuxedo Black by Memento Ink and colored with Copics. Then I cute it out with a rectangle nesstie and bordered it with a scallop rectangle nesstie. I also paper pieced the boxer shorts. Now comes the AWESOME part...Jodi got that same afternoon her new Copic Airbrushing system and we airbrushed the sky- it was so much fun!! I used her bow maker to create the perfect bow with the chocolate chip ribbon and a nesstie tag for the sentiment and again airbrushed the tag to match the image. I hope my hubby likes this!!


  1. This is such a great card Dina! You'll have to show me how you make these.

  2. This is SO utterly fun! It was fun to airbrush wasn't it??? LOVE how this came out...i am sure that Mr. Noodles will love it too!! The sentiment is perfect!!
